This recipe from Genoa is traditionally made with basil and pine nuts, but there is also a pesto alla trapanese, from Trapani in Sicily, made with walnuts or almonds in place of the pine nuts.


  • Large bunch of basil, leaves only
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • cup


Pulse all the ingredients in a food processor until they form a paste. Add salt to taste.
